Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 25.487 billion Vyos enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vyolyncian economy, worth a remarkable 6,041 trillion souls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 237,046 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vyolynce is ranked 2nd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 1,571st in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 7 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
